LA Times reports that singer Bobby Brown was arrested on Monday after police officers suspected him of DUI that is, driving under influence. The artist was driving through San Fernando Valley when he was pulled over by California Highway Patrol officers. The results of the field sobriety tests showed that Brown was under the influence of hallucinogenic substances.
Four days after the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office released the results of Whitney Houston’s autopsy, Bobby Brown was spotted while driving carelessly in San Fernando Valley. The singer was initially pulled over by police officers because he was speaking on the cellphone while driving; nevertheless, officers decided to administer him a field sobriety test because he appeared to be under the influence of drugs.
Results confirmed any suspicions that police officers might have had as Brown registered a .012 alcohol level in his blood. The singer was arrested near the corner of Victory Boulevard and Wilbur Avenue. He was later on, taken to the Van Nuys jail, but he was released on bail after blowing .08 on the sobriety test.
The arrest comes to worsen Brown’s public image who has been struggling in the past month to show fans that he is not to blame for his wife’s death. Despite this, Bobby Brown was severely criticized by the media because he failed to be with his daughter, Bobbi Cristina, when she was hospitalized after her mother’s death. Moreover, the singer left Whitney Houston’s funeral earlier because of a seating disagreement.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office stated on Friday that Houston drowned in the bath tub after using too much cocaine. The autopsy revealed that the late singer experienced a heart episode as a result of the use of cocaine. This caused her to lose consciousness and drown on February 14. Doctors did not reveal how much cocaine did the singer take, but they stated that the toxicology tests clearly pointed towards “chronic usage” of the drug.
Brown and Houston were married for 14 years and they were constantly in the media’s attention because of stories related to drug abuse and allegations of domestic violence. These events were often discussed by the tabloids and they soon became popular due to the reality show “Being Bobby Brown”.
